The figures show the benefits of GE‘s nano-coatings in delaying ice formation when compared with existing surfaces. Scientists at GE Global Research measured the onset of icing by monitoring the tem- perature of a supercooled drop of water on the sur- face, using an infrared camera. The spike in the drop temperature indicates the start of icing. © GE

igOptix, Inc. (OTCQX:GGOX), has begun sampling the LX8240, a 100G Dual Polarity
Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (DP-QPSK) Mach- Zehnder Modulator (MZM), based on GigOptix’s proprietary Thin Film Polymer on Silicon (TFPS) technology.
raphene Laboratories Inc. presented their new expanded product line at the American
Physical Society March Meeting in Boston, USA. Gra- phene Laboratories has significantly expanded their product line since their last appearance at a 2011 APS Meeting. The latest products include: CVD Gra- phene Coatings on various dielectric substrates, Graphene Paper, Reduced Graphene Oxide, Ultra- fine High Surface Area Graphene Nanoplatelets, and Continuous Graphene on Foil, and 3D Gra- phene Foam. The 3D graphene is grown on nickel or copper foam, and the metal may then be etched away leaving a free-standing, porous graphene struc- ture. The graphene foams have been found to be valuable for chemical sensing and energy storage. http://www.graphene-supermarket.com http://www.graphenelab.com/
